Cat Stevens grew from being a teen idol of the 60s into one of the most influential singer-songwriters of all time. In addition to his vast musical achievements, his lifelong spiritual quest has added intrigue and depth to a ground-breaking career.
Cat, born Steven Demetre Georgiou, achieved early success in the mid-60s with "I Love My Dog" and "Matthew and Son". He is a prolific songwriter writing songs such as "Wild World" and "Lady D'Arbanville" and "The First Cut Is The Deepest" the latter, in particular, would go on to become an international hit on multiple occasions for a variety of artists. Also included is Cat Stevens' version of "Morning Has Broken" a popular and well known Christian hymn which became one his biggest hits.
The Collected collection by Cat Stevens is a 2LP gatefold album, largely chronological through Stevens' career, ranging from his hits "Matthew & Son" to "Midday (Avoid City After Dark)," credited to the singer's latter-day Yusuf Islam identity. Stevens remains one of the few early 70s singer-songwriters specialized in folk and pop-songs, whose oeuvre continues to attract new listeners with every passing generation. This Collected album will only add to their numbers.
